Nice work of misleading fiction. Most charges are fictitious. Many defendants are innocent and coerced by stacking.

Isn't it time to get rid of the lawyer from the criminal law and its fictitious charges, sentences, and statistics?

This is worthless, fictitious lawyer trash at great taxpayer expense.

Someone explain why a sentencing commission continues to exist since it has no legal influence anymore. All members should resign, and refuse to waste tax money anymore. None knows anything about crime anyway.

None of these worthless lawyers can even utter the V word without choking.
